Adrian Pak Mei,
Yeah, there are a number of instructors there, I believe David Green aka "Yoda" has a school some place in England. He is a pretty cool guy and maybe able to direct you to a instructor if he is too far. Here is his website below.-ED
"The grappling arts imply most fights end up on the ground...take them there. The striking arts imply all fights start standing up...keep them there. The mixed martial arts imply any fight can go anywhere...be ready and able to go everywhere."-a mix martial artist

I agree with Gin, you owe it to yourself to look up Dave Green (YODA). He is a great guy, and he knows his stuff.
All the best,

Awe shucks guys - blush :-)

HI,im from bexley england, any schools nearby.
Bob Breen (Full instructor under Guro Dan Inosanto) is opening a new school soon in the Dartford area. Contact him at his London Academy for details (see his sdvert in MA Illustrated).
We have an affiliated group to us in Crawley - depends on how far you are willing to travel.

Glad to see that your interested in learning Bruce's art, just know that they are two or even more versions of JKD going around. Decide which one you want to learn, then find an instructor. That's my advice. I studied a few of Bruce's books before I started seeking an instructor, and after practicing the stance and parries for three months, I finally found what they said was a JKD instructor. He didn't even know the simple a basic rules of JKD, believe it or not, they are basic rules. He was just a boxer wanna be with an organization behind him. So beware. I'm not putting anyone down, I don't know any of the people that have posted a response. I'm just speaking of my own experience.
